JLG has introduced into North American, the RS Series of electric scissor lifts — the 1932RS and the 3248RS. Both lifts were on display at The Rental Show 2012 in New Orleans.

With platform heights of 5.8 m (19 ft) and 9.75 m (32 ft) and capacities of 227 kg (500 pounds) and 320 kg (705 pounds) respectively, they utilize direct electric drive motors. Passive pothole protection eliminates all moving parts in the pothole protection system, significantly reducing repair and maintenance cost.

The use of only 4 hydraulic hoses greatly reduces the chance of leaks and an easily accessible battery storage area further ensures ease of maintenance. Both models have the ability to traverse grades of up to 25 percent.

“The new models will appeal to those who seek a service-friendly machine that delivers value without sacrificing performance and quality,” said Jeff Ford, JLG Industries global product director. “Both models can be used in a variety of applications, and their innovative, rugged design makes them very reliable.”

Both lifts include a multifunction digital indicator (MDI display), which simplifies battery evaluation and fault diagnosis. In addition, the lifts feature controls similar to the ES Scissor, for ease of training and automatic traction control for optimal manoeuvrability. Fold-down guardrails on the 3248RS enable access through standard double doorways or under low obstructions. The 1932RS and the 3248RS will be available in late spring 2012.

New 8K Telehandler Prototype GenieNew 8K Telehandler Prototype

Genie displayed its new prototype 8,000-pound capacity telehandler at the Rental Show in New Orleans. The new Genie GTH-844B telehandler will replace the existing model and will be in production in the fourth quarter of 2012.

The telehandler has a maximum lift height of 44 ft (13.4 m), with a maximum reach of 28 ft (8.5 m) and a gross lifting capacity of 8,000 lbs (3628.7 kg). The lift capacity at maximum height is 6,000 lbs (2721.6 kg) and capacity at maximum reach is 2,000 lbs (907.2 kg). The operating weight is 25,000 lbs (11339.8 kg).

It is a new machine from stem to stern, including a more environmentally friendly Tier 4i diesel engine, a change in engine position from center-rear mount to right-side mount, a new ergonomic operator’s station, a narrowed width to 96 inches, and improved serviceability.

Also new is an improved control station creating a better working environment for the operator. The cab features a tiltable steering wheel, an updated single-lever joystick control, and new gauge and switch packages.

By narrowing the machine, the new model offers improved manoeuvrability, will fit through narrower doorways, and enables transport without a special over-width permit.

The GTH-844B will be available in both North and South American markets.
